(Editor’s Note: I wrote one Halloween post yesterday, then I realized we did this up big last year. So this one is a repost, like many of the other Halloween items you’ll see in coming days and weeks.)
October is a fun month, because it has Halloween. Adults who are otherwise intelligent and responsible like to dress up in stupid costumes and go to parties, while many others who don’t still remember when they used to go trick-or-treating as kids. Churches and other religious types don’t much like Halloween, but I always thought that celebrating Halloween is sort of like facing your fears eye to eye, and spitting in the face of death.
And there are probably as many songs about Halloween – and related subjects – as there are Christmas tunes. So let’s jump right in, and we’ll keep going to the graveyard throughout the month.
